Tinyproxy lightweight http proxy

Published: Saturday, 30 April 2022

Tinyproxy is a lightweight http proxy. The package is available in common linux distributions under the name tinyproxy.

A use case is running a tinyproxy http proxy that will send traffic over a VPN. Within the container or server, configure network routes so outgoing traffic is sent over the VPN. Clients can then be configured to use the http proxy, which in turn will send traffic over the VPN.
